Intratone has installed 25 of its digital noticeboards in the communal areas of a number of Stockport Housing’s tower blocks to improve tenant communications.
Stockport Homes wanted to communicate important messages to tenants such as maintenance works, lifts being out of operation and fire-safety information in a quick and simple way via a cloud-based system that can be accessed remotely around-the-clock.
The housing provider’s asset managers, compliance managers and communications team can upload PDFs, spreadsheets, Word documents or design their own messages, and can manage individual boards or whole groups at a time through Intratone’s cloud-based management portal. The noticeboards use GSM technology so wireless networks are not required.
Jack Wylie, regional sales manager, Intratone, said, “The remote management through Intratone’s cloud portal is one of the main benefits of the noticeboards – relaying up-to-date information to tenants is incredibly simple.
“The noticeboards can also be up and running in a matter of hours. In this case they were installed by Openview and come with 15 years’ pre-paid GSM so there is nothing else to pay for. Stockport Homes will now reap the benefits by being able to communicate information to their tenants quickly and easily without needing to go on site.”
